Default Issues with ivtec4life

Ok so comunication on this deal was good.payment was made item was shipped and received.after an inspection of the engine,it is not what he described.new everything.not even close,with the worn rod bearing it most likely not even idle.contacted him and he said I must have done something in the 10 min I had it to wear the rod bearing out.and the bearings both black but we're suppose to be 2 tanks old.yea rite.Buyers beware.I wish I had.

This thread?

http://www.rctech.net/forum/r-c-item...350-motor.html

Got pics of the motor, what did the top of the piston look like?

Best bet, contact him, try to resolve amicably, and go from there...

Also when buying motors, if some.one rebuilds it, chances are they may take pics (unless its only me lol).

Hope it goes well from here!

Yes that's the one.I didn't have to go that far into the engine.the rod is shot,anyone with years of nitro exp.like me knows once the lower rod bearing develops play the engine will not idle.this I know.it has plenty to.the rear bearing is black as nite...my bad...2 things you never but used engines and battery.but I slipped on that.

It's a proven fact that people who say "I have a lawyer" don't have one at all and will probably never be able to afford one in the event that they really needed one.

Trolling his threads later...That's not the way to handle this. Either resolve the issue or drop it. Trolling him later will only get YOU in trouble.
